Ingredients

How to make it

  • Grease inside of 6 crumpets rings.
  • In a bowl or jug, with a spout, mix together water, milk & sugar.
  • Heat in microwave to scald milk & then cool to lukewarm
  • Sprinkle the yeast over the lukewarm liquid & let sit for about 5 mins until yeast has softened. Stir
  • Add to yeast mixture the beaten egg, salt & melted butter. Mix well
  • Add flour & beat until no lumps remain
  • Cover container with plastic wrap & leave in a warm place & let rise until batter has doubled, 35 - 40 mins
  • Beat down lightly & let batter rest for about 5 mins
  • Heat electric griddle to about 365 degrees & brush with melted shortening
  • Place rings on griddle & heat well
  • Fill the rings at least 1/2 full with batter, dividing the batter between the 6 rings
  • Cook until bubbles form on the tops & start to pop & the bottoms are golden
  • The crumpets will pull away from the sides of the rings slighty
  • Using tongs, lift the rings off the crumpets & flip them over
  • Cook for about 2 mins until lighly golden
  • .
  • NOTE:- I like to use a container with a spout to ease pouring
  • You can cook the crumpets on an electric griddle or in a heavy skillet on top of the stove. Just make sure your skillet is completely flat or the batter will run out under the edge of the ring.
  • If you don't have crumpet rings, save tuna cans, shrimp cans etc & cut off the tops & bottoms. They make perfect rings

    Using metal cookie cutters also works great for shaping the crumpets on the griddle. C=

    I love the crumpets from the store, so I imagine homemade ones are going to be even better. I am saving those tuna cans. I hope I remember why after I gat them saved. -Lori

    A spot of tea in the garden you say. Got to hold your pinkie just right though. You know Frodo, I've had these rings forever & never thought about using them for eggs. Great idea.
